The essential book for that all-important birthday, Now We Are Six is a classic in its own right, treasured by every new generation of readers.

    The book is very funny and very clever. Simon Hoggart, The Guardian At the moment I am reading Christopher Matthew's Now We Are Sixty which I absolutely love. Sheridan Morley, Daily Express Christopher Matthew's hilarious new book. Valerie Grove, The Oldie Victor Meldrews, rejoice! Peter Brown, The Times.   When We Were Very Young and Now We Are Six audiobook, by A. A. Milne Blackstone Audio presents, from the unabridged collection “A.A. Milne’s Pooh Classics,” the forty-four poems from When We Were Very Young and the thirty-five poems of Now We Are Six, performed by Peter Dennis. This is the only reading of these delightful verses authorized by 4/5.

      A sixty foot whale splashing across nineteen inches of your living-room while you sip your Coca-Cola is not reality. It’s no longer a sixty foot whale on our television screens. It’s an endless scroll, fifty thousand videos eternally looping of giggling whales with sunglasses, a noisy beat, and a cheeky attitude on a tablet. However, the children’s book Now We Are Six can also be gotten on it’s own. I’d stay away from any Disney versions of the book, and look for versions that have the original drawings, as they capture the real feeling in this unique book. Buy this at your local independent bookstore. Find this on Amazon: Now We Are Six (Winnie-the-Pooh).
